Icon #2 Point Ormond

I am doing a St Kilda/ Elwood icon series.
I wanted to get the Point Ormond beacon. But when I climbed up there last night I realised the base had recently been encased in concrete and it looks horrible.
So I wandered down to the beach and took a shot of the city from Elwood with the beacon in the top right hand corner. I hope you like it.

G’day all, my name is Melinda but my mates call me Mel, so feel free. I live by the beach in Elwood, Victoria, Australia. I contribute to a few charities as a Photojournalist, namely HEAL Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Any of my Africa stuff’s profits go to them. So far the sales have bought 7 operations and heaps more so thanks for everyone’s support. I also take a mean beach shot (well try to).

    To be honest I did not notice the concrete until you pointed it out. The slow shutter speed creates a magical effect on the water. The sunset is gorgeous. Great work
